Telemedicine in Age-Related Macular Degeneration
This study seeks to evaluate a system for the automated early detection of Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD). AMD is a condition in which there is breakdown of the macula of the eye, the part of the retina that is responsible for sharp, central vision. We will take...
Telemedicine in Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD)
Age: 50 years - 66+
AMD affects 15 million Americans, with 200,000 new advanced cases diagnosed each year. AMD is the leading cause of blindness in this country, from either the “dry” or “wet” advanced forms. At present, there is no treatment for dry AMD. Besides bl...
A Snapshot Adaptive Optics and Hyperspectral Autofluorescence Fundus Camera for Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD)
Age: 50 - 90 years
The purpose of this study is to learn more about age-related macular degeneration (AMD) by using a new investigational technology, AO-(adaptive optics) OCT (optical coherence tomography) with hyperspectral autofluorescence (AF). While currently there is no cure for AMD,...
IIT Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD) and Cardiovascular Disease
Age: 18 - 95 years
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of blindness in our country, and heart attack and stroke are leading causes of death. We have discovered that AMD and these lethal systemic diseases may be linked by a special form of AMD called “reticula...
